Course Code: CECD 559
You successfully completed the first SolidWorks course. Solid work, props to you. Now it's time to get really serious, with SolidWorks Level II, one of the world's most popular CAD/MCAD programs. In this course, you'll develop intermediate professional skills and techniques and progress to more advanced model-creation features. Among others, you'll learn the following SolidWorks concepts: 3D solid, surface and sheet-metal modeling, design for plastic, welded structures, project design procedures, multi-part modeling and assemblies, interface checking, and, as if that weren't enough, simulation and design studies techniques. In short, it's a great way to model yourself for your future career.
